Mom's Chevron Quilt Finish

Well here it is, my last finish of the summer. I always love watching quilts evolve through
 fabric selection and design wall stages, to cuddling with them on your lap as you bind them to this final finish stage. It was also fun to read your previous comments left and to discover I'm in good company when it comes to enjoying hand binding. 

I used the Fabric line: Hot For Chocolate II by Betsy Chutchian with Blue Hill Fabrics to create this quilt and a dog pantograph upon my mom's request. (I think she wanted to match my dad's quilt.) I used a cream Kig Tut thread from Superior. (I almost went with a brown thread, but like how the cream showed the quilting a little bit more.)

This quilt measures a cozy 53" x 73".

My parents arrive this weekend for their final visit of the summer. So please feel welcome to stop by and see an update to the post as I add a picture of my mom with her quilt. (I can't wait, as I know she's going to love it.)
With Smiles,
Val:)

  2. That's a beautiful hand work! I think you were right in choosing this color. The unusual quilting design stand out prettily.
    P.S.: I always finish my binding by hand on the back of my quilts. :-)

  8. This is so lovely! I'm with you ... hand binding means that I get to cuddle the quilt a little longer before it's handed over to it's forever owner :)
